The guest post below is coming to you today from the lovely Marta at ChitChat Nails. Though she'll tell you she had stage fright posting on Nailed It, there's no reason for her to. She has inspired me from the start. Her blog was one of my first to follow and think, "Damn...I wish I was that good!"
I present to you...Marta's post!
Hello Lovely Ladies,
My name is Marta and I run a little Canadian nail-art blog called ChitChat Nails.
*does a little happy dance*
I am so excited to be able to do a little guest post here for you! Katy continues to create trendsetting and innovative manicures that are always so crisp and clean. I will admit, that I had a minor case of the shakes and quite a bit of 'stage fright' and may have tried to overcompensate a little, and thus my look is a bit busier than what I am normally used to.
I had recently placed a hefty order with www.dollarnailart.com and had a few studs and square glitter that I was itching to play with...I thought this would be the perfect occasion to try them out.
To create this look I started with two coats of my all time favourite off-white OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I then applied some square studs onto the accent nail. On the other nails I created a gradient using China Glaze Pelican Grey and essence Movie Star. I then stamped using Gals GA35 and Mash Black. A few square glitter bits in black and silver completed the look. One coat of Seche Vite, and I was done. *phew*

I hope you like this look, and I hope this Holiday Season finds you all well!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :D
Thank you so much Marta!
